Some faves

Going to talk about a few favorites.

This here is one of my favorite dresses.  It's a little 60s Liberty Circle dress I bought off Etsy a few years ago for about $16.

Wearing with some of my fav pieces of bling, including the bastard massive cuff for Vix!

More fav things!!
Last Sunday I had a friend and her family from high school that I haven't seen since high school come to Asheville for a little visit and vacay.  Used to call her Little Lisa because she is such a tiny little thing and I've talked about her here when she was running her company...  Now, she is doing incredible things.  I'm so happy for her.

The X-man, Little Lisa, Me!!!!!!
It also happened to be our 20 year high school reunion---perfection.

Her husband and kids are awesome and our kids had the best time. EVER.

Her 2 beautiful boyzzz + my two beautiful girlzzz = 22222222222 much fun!

They stayed for several days in our little guest house and we hiked and explored Asheville together.

That same weekend I also had another high school friend pop into town with her family---no pics---but, it was sooooooooo great to see her.  Coincidently, our daughters were the same age and were pre-school friends and in the same Daisy Scout Troop, so Girl London was blowing up happy to see her Tampa friend in Asheville <3

I also went to a house party thrown by some friends of ours that also live in Asheville (and went to high school with the X-man and I in Tampa---LOTS of people from Florida here---they call us Floridiots! hahahaha) annnnnnnd ran into ANOTHER friend who was popping through town on her way from Denver back to Tampa.  
Used to party with this chica here back in the day and hadn't seen her face for about 15 years.  Nice :)

Ok, last one!  We also ran into X-man's best friend's little brother.  They moved to Charlotte recently and randomly popped up in Asheville after a hike and we got to hang with them downtown.  Probably hadn't seen these guys since Girl London was an infant and we used to do these monthly dinner parties--- unfortunately no pics. 

Another favorite thing I want to talk about is MY NEW FAVORITE PLACE ON EARTH rn.

The Hazel Mill Amphitheatre.

I am drama crazy.  Can't act, don't want to act, but absolutely love live theatre.  You are allowed to bring chairs blankets, some people bring little tables, picnics, wine, beer...  No smoking tho!!  Although we are assured by the announcer before every performance that if Asheville takes a turn like Denver, that they might bend the 'no smoking' rule lolzzzzzz

It is run by the Montford Park Players, one of the longest running Shakespeare companies and GET THIS--- all summer performances are FREEEEEEEEEEEE!   It always starts at about 7:30 in the evening, so it quickly gets dark and I love it!!!  

Heaven, I tell ya'.  We've seen Taming of the Shrew (amazing--it was even better than the performance I saw at the Job Theatre in Tampa!) and Tartuffe (they decided to honor Moliere because they thought Shakespeare would approve.  I agree!!!  I had only read that play and it was so awesome to see it preformed).  Coriolanus is next.  It is rarely preformed so this should be a treat. 

The Players lent their theatre to The Fox & Beggar Theatre  earlier this year for the show Animalia that I have to say was literally one of the most magical performances I have ever seen.  It took you into the past/present/furure/dreaming/waking/death/love/magic/life...  If you click the link there is a little video, but really it was just this miracle of the moment that only live performance can reach.  It also had a live orchestra to accompany the show.  

So that was some faves of mine.
Trying to keep it positive because the news has been a downer lately and giving me a bit of anxiety ughhhh

Totally hooking up with Patti for Visible Monday!

Love & Light,
